Ducks' Jason Blake To Miss Three Months After Getting Cut By Skate

The Anaheim Ducks may have won their home opener on Friday night 1-0, but they will be without left wing Jason Blake for three months. Blake suffered a deep laceration on his left wrist when he was accidentally stepped on by defenseman Brent Burns of the San Jose Sharks. You can see the play here:

"Jason is resting at home and doing very well. This was an unfortunate, freak accident, but we are pleased to hear that Jason is expected to make a full and complete recovery. He's a real character person and teammate, and we look forward to having him back in our lineup when he's ready."
